Art Galleries and Awards

I have been doing photography professionally since I was 17. My first show was in 1976. It was one of those things I didn't keep up with, so I am going to try to start working backward with the most recent things first as I can remember or find references.

Over the decades I have been published in almost every regional publication, and a few national and international. I didn't even try to keep up with it, but here are a few that maybe were notable or I had a tear sheet to remember by. Many of the references below are about me, not by me.
